biblical figure (Genesis 10)

Meshech is a person mentioned in the Bible, described in Genesis 10 as the son of Japheth, son of Noah.

Meshech in the Bible can also mean the tribe that came from his children, or the country where they lived, for example in Psalm 120:5. Many Bible Atlases such as IVP and Zondervan Archived 2012-12-07 at the Wayback Machine state it was in Asia Minor, while others say the Caucasus.
